Aidan O’Brien has a 25 per cent strike rate at Goodwood in the past five seasons. Churchill, a four-time Group 1 winner, is expected to bounce back to form in the Qatar Sussex Stakes (3.35).
Roger Varian has a 22 per cent strike rate at Sandown and a 21 per cent strike-rate with handicap debutants. Great Court (7.55),
making his stable debut, has a great chance to improve the trainer’s 20 per cent strike rate with new recruits.
